    Notes 
    • Col. Wm. Fitch was one of the earliest settlers and most prominent citizens of the town. He was employed by the council of safety to furnish supplies to the troops raised to repel the invasion of Burgoyne in 1777. When the settlers north of this town fled, panic struck at Burgoyne. His wife Alethia, with three small daughters, all mounted on one horse, started south for a place of refuge, but being reassured they soon returned.

      He owned the first saw and grist mill built at the village, by William Bradford, and kept the first store in town. The village was known on our early maps as Fitch's Mills.
